No permission given for Sunny Leone’s event, says K’taka govt

Bengaluru (Karnataka): The Karnataka government on Friday denied of any permission being granted for Time Creation’s December 31st event on New Year’s Eve in which actress Sunny Leone was to take part.

“No permission has been granted for Time Creation’s December 31st (New Year’s eve) event in which Sunny Leone was to take part,” said Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy.

Earlier in the day, the members of pro-Kannada group, Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene (KARAVE) staged a demonstration, protesting against actor Sunny Leone taking part in a party event in Bengaluru.

Sunny is expected to participate in a New Year party event at Manyatha Tech Park on December 31 night.

The protesters are urging her not to participate in the scheduled event. They have threatened that if she attended the event, then the party workers would commit suicide.

Jayadev Prasad, Secretary of KARAVE said: “We don’t have any objections, if she (Sunny) attends the programme with a saree as per Indian culture. If she attends the event, with a half dress or in any other ways we will commit suicide at the event.”

“We have already purchased 70 tickets for the event. If she dances half-naked, we will protest more and then commit suicide to save our culture,” added Prasad. (ANI)
